Rodriguez: “It’s a slow progression”

Alex Rodriguez

Alex Rodriguez is an active baseball player again. He made his first rehab appearance with Low-A Charleston last night and will play there again today. Obviously I’m not in South Carolina, so we’ll leave on The Associated Press for last night’s details.

Alex RodriguezCHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Alex Rodriguez called his season’s debut a success, even if the results Tuesday night didn’t bear that out.

Rodriguez played his first game since a miserable October and went hitless in two at-bats for the Charleston RiverDogs. In his first game since left hip surgery in January, Rodriguez grounded into a double play in his first time up then struck out looking against 23-year-old Williams Perez to end the third before coming out for the night.

For Rodriguez, the individual outcome wasn’t important after waiting nine months to play.

“I’m just happy to be back playing,” he said. “I feel like a kid again.”

A rusty, soon-to-be 38-year-old kid, though.

Rodriguez had to charge hard on the game’s first play when Rome center fielder Kyle Wren, the son of Atlanta Braves general manager Frank Wren, bunted down the third base line. Rodriguez fielded it bare handed, but couldn’t catch Wren at first on the infield hit.

“That’s a ‘Welcome back’ for me,” Rodriguez said with a smile. “That was a heck of a bunt.”

Rodriguez earlier said he’d need all 20 days of rehabilitation games to prepare for his return to the New York Yankees and that assessment didn’t change after his first game.

“It’s a slow progression,” Rodriguez said. “Three innings is not a heck of a lot. Two at-bats is not much. It almost feels like March 1 in spring training and that’s basically the approach.”

He said a benchmark would come tomorrow morning when he sees how his body feels after this game. Rodriguez still planned to play Wednesday night before working out on Thursday.

“Look, I am as curious as you guys are to see how I am going to react. It’s been a while since I was in competition,” he said before the game.

Alex RodriguezRome shortstop Jose Peraza also bunted down the third base line in the second inning, but Rodriguez was too far back to make a play. The RiverDogs finished a 4-2 victory over Rome about 90 minutes after Rodriguez left the game.

The three-time AL MVP has been working out at the Yankees’ minor league complex in Tampa, Fla., since May.

He looked healthy and enthusiastic to begin his season. His swing in the batting cage was the same simple flick that’s helped him to 647 career home runs. He took grounders at third next to Yankees teammate Eduardo Nunez, who’s recovering from a left oblique strain. Nunez played shortstop and went 2 for 3.

Nunez was winded as he sat in front of his locker. He played four innings before coming out. “The oblique is OK. The timing is coming. It’ll be a couple more games,” he said.

Rodriguez and Nunez enjoyed lunch Tuesday before arriving at the ballpark.

“It’s my first time” in South Carolina, Rodriguez said. “Great Southern hospitality so far.”

Players from the RiverDogs and the Rome Braves lined the dugouts to watch Rodriguez work. It’s the third straight season Rodriguez has spent time in the minors coming back from injuries.

Alex RodriguezRodriguez would not comment about Major League Baseball’s investigation into the now-closed Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic.

Rodriguez looked smooth in the field during warm-ups, grabbing everything hit his way. His throws to first were strong and on target. When he was done with grounders, Rodriguez signed autographs for fans gathered next to the RiverDogs dugout.

“Good luck to you, Alex,” said Charleston resident Blanche Lloyd after getting a signed baseball.

There were 8,255 who turned out at Riley Park, less than 200 from the record attendance of 8,426 set on opening night 2007.

Rodriguez and Nunez were in Charleston with Pat Roessler, the Yankees director of player development based in Tampa.

A-Rod hopes he can start having a positive impact on the Yankees after last year’s disappointing season and his benching during the American League Championship Series.

“I’ve got to tell you,” Rodriguez said at Riley Park. “I’m really, really excited. This probably has to be the hardest injury I’ve tried to overcome. It has to be the longest.”

    Yankees still need a bat/bats. If these three became available and the cost was lesser prospects, which one, if any, would you want?

    Switch hitting 30 yo, basically DH with some 1B, Kendrys Morales?
    25 yo lefty 1B/ corner OF’er, Logan Morrison?
    31 yo righty 1B/corner OF’er, currently injured, Michael Morse?
    ———————

    MTU-

    I was looking at those 3, to share some 1B time, and 2 are FA’s-Morales[5.25M] and Morse[6.75M].

  2. MTU July 3rd, 2013 at 9:12 am

    “A journey of a thousand miles begins w a single step.”

    How many times have the Twins given the Yanks a confidence boost over the last decade or so? It’s the reason I root for them whenever they’re playing someone else. Actually, I’ve rooted for them even when they are playing the Yanks–because, heck, they deserve it.

  4. Yankee Trader July 3rd, 2013 at 9:17 am

    I should have added Michael Young to the mix.

  5. austinmac July 3rd, 2013 at 9:17 am

    It struck me Alex looked old in the photo of him coming up the stairs. I don’t think anyone really has a good feel whether he can really contribute. I sure hope he can.

  6. 4TrainNorth July 3rd, 2013 at 9:17 am

    “Simple flick” is good way to describe Alex’s A swing. Come to think of it, can anyone think of a prettier right-handed swing in recent history?

  7. MTU July 3rd, 2013 at 9:20 am

    Mac-

    If anyone can it’s A-Rod.

    He’s a tireless worker. It’s simply a matter of whether or not his body will cooperate.

    I don’t even think he knows the answer to that one yet.

  8. Shame Spencer July 3rd, 2013 at 9:22 am

    I hope Alex can contribute. He doesn’t even need to be as good as he was last year to be better than what we have. (And I still think he should take some grounders at 1B :) )

  9. Chip July 3rd, 2013 at 9:22 am

    Trader,

    I would be willing to take back Nolasco if the Marlins would throw in LoMo.

  10. MTU July 3rd, 2013 at 9:25 am

    Who would rather have ?

    You can only pick one.

    Trout
    Harper
    Machado
    Puig

    My guess is that most would say Machado because of his age and the position he plays.

    I’d be very tempted by Puig though.

  11. Yankee Trader July 3rd, 2013 at 9:25 am

    Have to go. Have a great day, and a wonderful, safe 4th of July.

    Too many question marks and very little time once the injured players come back, to analyze if they are 100% and can contribute, before the TD is over.

  12. MTU July 3rd, 2013 at 9:28 am

    And who’s your choice on the pitching side ?

    Cole
    Harvey
    Kershaw

    I’m goin’ w Kershaw. He’s left-handed and he’s proven.

  13. 86w183 July 3rd, 2013 at 9:28 am

    Whatever became of Juan Rivera. He would be an improvement as a part time RH hitting 1B.

    But I’d just give Randy Ruiz a shot. He hit another HR last night, is hitting .324 @Scranton, and against LHP he’s 7-17 with 3 HR.

  14. 86w183 July 3rd, 2013 at 9:30 am

    MTU —

    That’s a tough call, but for this Yankees team, Machado would have to be the first choice.

    But you can pull any three away and I’d be thrilled to add the fourth.

    Wouldn’t be shocked if Trout and Harvey end up in pinstripes in five years or so.

  15. Ys Guy July 3rd, 2013 at 9:32 am

    tex was on wfan this morning, he’s raising money for harlem rbi.

    he’s a class guy and a great teammate.

  16. MTU July 3rd, 2013 at 9:33 am

    86-

    What about just pure talent and potential wise forgetting our own particular need.

    Who then ?

    Harper has said he was a lifelong Yankee fan but I figure the Nats will lock him up.

    It probably all gets down to the Bejamins as usual.

  17. pkyankfan69 July 3rd, 2013 at 9:33 am

    On my way to close on my first house

    ‘Murica F___ YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. MTU July 3rd, 2013 at 9:35 am

    69-

    Congratulations.

    How everything goes well.

    Those things can be really nerve-wracking.

    Always seems like some BS crops up at the last second.

    best of luck.

  19. MTU July 3rd, 2013 at 9:36 am

    edit: hope

  20. pkyankfan69 July 3rd, 2013 at 9:37 am

    Thanks MTU…. And yes it does… I was supposed to close Monday, then yesterday, and now today… But today looks like 100% finally…

  21. MTU July 3rd, 2013 at 9:39 am

    69-

    It’s exciting. Like a dream come true.

    Do you have any children ?

  22. pkyankfan69 July 3rd, 2013 at 9:42 am

    Oh no… No kids… My GF of about 5-1/2 years is moving in with me but we don’t have any kids… Going to enjoy ourselves for a few more years before all that

  23. UpState July 3rd, 2013 at 9:43 am

    per Cubs Fan poster: (International signings)

    #1,2,16 plus Mejis? ( According to BA ).
    One hell of a day for the Cubs!
    Add on top of that two power arms that are team controlled for years and all we gave up was a rental SP, fringe catching prospect and a small ss/2nd base prospect!
    Kudos to a great front office!

    ———————————————————

    ….and what have we done on this front lately ?

  24. Chip July 3rd, 2013 at 9:44 am

    I think the Mariners would like to hold onto Morales if they can. They’ve had such a hard time recruiting hitters, Montero has taken a major step back, Ibanez is old, Kendrys might be the kind of guy they try to keep there for a few years to help along their young hitters.

  25. MTU July 3rd, 2013 at 9:45 am

    69-

    That sounds good.

    You seem level-headed.

    Enjoy yourselves while you are young.

  26. 86w183 July 3rd, 2013 at 9:48 am

    MTU —

    I’d still take Machado. Left side infielders with that kind of offensive ability are much harder to find than outfielders.

    I’d take Trout next because he’s a natural CF and that makes him more special all things being equal.

    Each has the potential to be a perennial All-Star…. Puig and Harper need to be a bit less reckless out there especially on defense.

  27. pkyankfan69 July 3rd, 2013 at 9:49 am

    MTU,

    That’s the plan for sure.

    I’m out for now… Stay cool out there!

  28. MTU July 3rd, 2013 at 9:51 am

    86-

    One thing is for sure.

    Those a 4 really talented young ballplayers.

    Budding Stars.

    Baseball needs that kind of renewal.

    I’m hoping we come up with one of our own.

    ;)

  29. 86w183 July 3rd, 2013 at 9:59 am

    Headed to San Francisco tomorrow! Haven’t been there in 25 years.

    Trying to take in Mets game next Tuesday…. mostly to see the ballpark not the Mets

    Indeed. And, I’ve heard that he’s awesome in the dugout and clubhouse tool. He’s been compared to Edgar with respect to his work ethic as well as his willingness to share his knowledge and experience.

    Well the Mariners aren’t exactly a franchise hurting for money and I don’t think Kendrys will have that huge a market. But I would be thrilled to have him on the Yankees.

  33. bardos July 3rd, 2013 at 10:02 am

    In 40 years time an ex Charleston pitcher, who later went on to become a truck driver in Galveston, Texas, will be sitting in his rocking chair and telling his grandkids: “You know, I struck out the great Alex Rodriguez”.

    “Yeah right, Gramps.”

    You guys are just two concerned about to minor an issue such as which version of too some of us inadvertently mis-use.

    It’s’ not two important and it’ss not to significant too worry about.

    Et Tu ??

  36. Chip July 3rd, 2013 at 10:08 am

    Just for giggles, let’s say the Yankees let Cano, Granderson, Hughes, Logan and Joba walk. Mo, Andy and Kuroda all retire (or Kuroda goes to Japan)

    Yankees use the money set aside for Cano elsewhere:

    Gardner – CF
    Jeter – SS
    Zobrist – 2b
    Tex – 1b
    Alex – 3b
    Morales – DH
    McCann – C
    Almonte – LF
    Ichiro – RF

    ~ ~ ~

    True about the M’s $$$ . . .
    And their pockets are about to get deeper with a new TV/Cable deal in the next couple of years and a VERY low total guaranteed payroll (I think I heard something crazy like $30M) after this season.

  38. J. Alfred Prufrock July 3rd, 2013 at 10:09 am

    Compass,

    Montero is 23 years old and rehabbing from a knee injury.

    I’ll be happy to relieve you of your disappointment and take him back.

    We need a RHB, and talented young bats, generally. He looked adequate enough playing 1B for Tacoma, can catch and DH. I think I can find reps for him at all 3 spots and allow his bat to play in my ballpark :)

  39. Chip July 3rd, 2013 at 10:15 am

    Bench: Cervelli, Nix, Adams, 4th OF

    Pitching staff:

    CC, Pineda, Nova, Nuno, Phelps

    Bullpen:
    Closer – Robertson
    Set up – Betances & Claiborne
    others – LHP – Rondon & Huff; RHP – Kelley & Warren

  40. Shame Spencer July 3rd, 2013 at 10:20 am

    Chip – That’s an extremely optimistic rotation, IMO, but it would really be something if it worked out that way.

  41. Shame Spencer July 3rd, 2013 at 10:23 am

    Anyone know off hand when Pineda’s next start is, btw?

  42. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 3rd, 2013 at 10:24 am

    So I bit the bullet and went for the expensive hockey jersey (Hans, I really didn’t think the one on eBid looked like the real thing, but thank you for the tip), only to get an email this morning telling me that they have no more of that jersey in the size I need.

    I’ve only know about this for over a month…

    :(

    ****************

    Sux are acting somewhat otherworldly.

    Another thing we’re always “assured” here is that managing in baseball isn’t really that big a deal. (I’d still love to know where all of these c*ck-sure posits come from…)

    You might want to poll the Suxer players to see whether playing for Valentine or playing for Kerrigan has made any difference in the outcome. Pretty much the same group of players.

  43. Ys Guy July 3rd, 2013 at 10:25 am

    hughes looked good last night again, second time in a row.

    trade him before they get back home!

    :)

  44. PacoDooley July 3rd, 2013 at 10:34 am

    MTU July 3rd, 2013 at 9:25 am
    Who would rather have ?

    You can only pick one.

    Trout
    Harper
    Machado
    Puig
    ———————–

    This will be an interesting group to watch. As great as Puig has looked, he needs a lot more time in the League before I would take him over the other three. I would take Harper largely because I think he is the most likely to have a career of sustained success. I am tempted by Trout as well. Machado looks great, but I simply don’t see it as being likely that he has a better career than the other two I put ahead of him.

    Puig may end up being the best of the lot, but he needs more time to prove it.

    On the pitchers side, I take Kershaw, not doubt in my mind.

  45. DONNYBROOK July 3rd, 2013 at 10:37 am

    I would add the DL’d Bourjos to that list above. Sure, currently Not on the level of those guys, but Definitely a Comer.

  46. Ys Guy July 3rd, 2013 at 10:39 am

    bourjos might become a great player but he’s also working on becoming nick johnson.

    he’s always hurt.

  47. trisha - true pinstriped blue July 3rd, 2013 at 10:41 am

    Funny that Adams is starting to heat up right when Arod is on the verge of returning.

  48. Ys Guy July 3rd, 2013 at 10:45 am

    adam’s 2 hits last night give him a total of 6 in the last 30 games.

    ‘heating up’ is a very relative term in his case.

  49. Ys Guy July 3rd, 2013 at 10:46 am

    sorry 6 hits in the last 30 days not games.

  50. austinmac July 3rd, 2013 at 10:58 am

    I said yesterday and believe that Adams can be a capable hitter and needed to get a couple of hits to build some confidence back. Now, we will see. I do like his approach and swing.

    I would pick Harper from the group just because his swing would work so well at the stadium. Any of them would be a dream come true for the Yankees.

  51. DONNYBROOK July 3rd, 2013 at 11:00 am

    To me, the Alarming thing about the 2013 MLB Season, is the number of flat-out Blown calls. We have had instant replay for quite a while, and HD and super slow-mo for several seasons, and Never seen anything close to this buffonery on a Daily basis. The number of missed calls at 1B is incredible, and the ball ain’t even close to being in the 1B’s mitt. I know on a tag play on the bases, when the throw beats the runner, the runner is almost always going to be called out, regardless off whether the tag beats the runner to the bag. It’s almost automatic. But when it comes to a tag play at HP, Blue has gotta call the play as he Actually see’s it. That call, (resulting in a run), is simply too important to be judged via auto-pilot.

  52. Wave Your Hat July 3rd, 2013 at 11:02 am

    Chip-

    That team you created would be good for maybe fourth place in the AL East, but last is more like it.

    However, it doesn’t foreclose completing in the long run.

  53. austinmac July 3rd, 2013 at 11:02 am

    Trisha,

    I don’t think we know that Arod is on the verge of returning. He might be, but I’m not sure anyone has ever played with two post-operative hips. I agree with MTU’s earlier statement that he will work very hard. Even Alex admits he doesn’t know.

  54. Wave Your Hat July 3rd, 2013 at 11:03 am

    “I said yesterday and believe that Adams can be a capable hitter and needed to get a couple of hits to build some confidence back.”

    Oh come on. I hope Adams can hit too but no one goes forever without a hit or two.

  55. Ys Guy July 3rd, 2013 at 11:03 am

    adams is gonna get sent down for sure but it would be good for him to have some success before he does.

  56. champ809 July 3rd, 2013 at 11:04 am

    I think I’d take Puig and Kershaw….although I wanna say Puig and Harvey..

    Chip you’ve gotta let this Zobrist to replace Cano thing seriously.
    Zobrist is currently slugging UNDER .400! Robbie’s hit almost as many homers this week as Zobrist has all season!!!!

    The gap between Robbie and Zobrist is a huge one and Zobrist will command 12-14 mil next year as a FA

  57. austinmac July 3rd, 2013 at 11:09 am

    Wave,

    Of course no one goes forever without a hit. My point is confidence is critical–think Yogi. I don’t think we should write him off. Are you?

  58. UnKnown July 3rd, 2013 at 11:09 am

    69 – Have fun. I hope you enjoy signing your name about 65 times today.

    The game last night turned when the Twins couldn’t capitalize with runners on 2nd and 3rd and nobody out in the bottom of the 5th. Once Phil got out of that jam you could just feel the momentum shift in the stadium. We have all seen it thousands of times when teams fail to cash in on those kind of opportunities.

    Really happy what the Yanks have done the last two games but the Twins are bad. (Like really really bad) So it will be a better test for the Y’s to see what happens this weekend against Buck’s Birds back at the Stadium. It sure is nice to get back in the win column the last few nights though. Whopping up on teams you should beat is very key.

  59. DONNYBROOK July 3rd, 2013 at 11:11 am

    The NL West has turned into an absolute Joke. Basically, all the Giants have to concern themselves with is getting ready for the Playoffs. They can stumble their way into winning that Division.

  60. austinmac July 3rd, 2013 at 11:11 am

    It may have already been noted, but Sherman says he has heard the Dodgers are much more likely to pursue Utley than Cano for second base. That would be a good thing.

  61. DONNYBROOK July 3rd, 2013 at 11:11 am

    Yea, I would Not write Yogi off just yet.

  62. Bucky July 3rd, 2013 at 11:12 am

    “Bench: Cervelli, Nix, Adams, 4th OF”

    Chip – where would you see Nunez? In AAA, waiting for Jeter’s retirement, or traded away?

    —————–

    Honestly, I forgot he was on the team.

  64. DONNYBROOK July 3rd, 2013 at 11:14 am

    When Sherman starts actually quoting sources, Then I’ll give him some credence. Till then, he’s the National Inquirer smack dab in the middle of the sports section.

  65. DONNYBROOK July 3rd, 2013 at 11:16 am

    Johnny Bench should Not be on a list that includes Cervelli, Nix, and Adams.

  66. Bucky July 3rd, 2013 at 11:20 am

    I think you’d have to go with Nunie over Nix. Adams can back up 3B and 2B (and… I guess… 1B). Nunie probably gets as much or more playing time backing up Jeter, giving The Captain plenty of reps at DH.

  67. PacoDooley July 3rd, 2013 at 11:21 am

    ————————

    So you don’t think that the Dodgers have a run in them despite their improved play since Puig joined the team (well, definitely improved W-L, but still not a great record).

  68. austinmac July 3rd, 2013 at 11:27 am

    A reporter can’t quote sources or he has no more sources. I find Sherman pretty reliable in an unreliable group.

  69. Wave Your Hat July 3rd, 2013 at 11:29 am

    “Of course no one goes forever without a hit. My point is confidence is critical–think Yogi. I don’t think we should write him off. Are you?”

    Yeah, I think so. It’s been an unfortunate call-up for Adams. I think the Yanks will send him down when they can and be reluctant to recall him.

  70. DONNYBROOK July 3rd, 2013 at 11:36 am

    The Giants have the SP’s. The Dodgers have Kershaw and a grab bag.

  71. DONNYBROOK July 3rd, 2013 at 11:38 am

    “I find Sherman pretty reliable in an unreliable group”. NOT exactly a rousing endorsement. Kinda like taking the “National Enquirer” over “The Globe”.

  72. blake July 3rd, 2013 at 11:39 am

    Even if the dodgers don’t chase Cano….there are still plenty of teams that will

    Will the Yanks win the Division?

    Yay or Nay? (one word will suffice)

    If this is beneath you or you root for implosion, no need to answer)

    Who would rather have ?

    You can only pick one.

    Trout
    Harper
    Machado
    Puig

    ————

    Too early on Puig. I seriously think you can’t go wrong with any of the other three. I’d probably take Harper or Trout.

    And who’s your choice on the pitching side ?

    Cole
    Harvey
    Kershaw

    —————-

    I’d take Kershaw as well.

    “You can only pick one.

    Trout
    Harper
    Machado
    Puig”

    Probably still trout for me….he’s got the most track record of being awesome. It’s close between him and Machado…..Harper might have the most upside but I kinda worry he might get hurt a lot.

    Need to see more of Puig….league hasn’t had time to adjust to him yet

    “Cole
    Harvey
    Kershaw”

    This one is pretty easy…..Kershaw has been awesome for years…..and is very young yet himself

    I don’t know what happened with Adams….maybe it took some time to adjust to the awesome food and fancy hotels in the bigs but he was always better than he has been playing.

    I think he will hit if given enough time…..the issue is giving him that time since the Yanks apparently still think they are a contender

    “hughes looked good last night again, second time in a row.

    trade him before they get back home!”

    And yet he still has a 4.55 era this year and a 4.41 career era. Yes, he should in fact be trade bait or let go after this season for a draft pick. He has been completely mediocre with the Yankees and the best thing for his career would be a team switch, preferably to a more flyball friendly home park.

    “And yet he still has a 4.55 era this year and a 4.41 career era”

    3.38 era on the road…..Ys is killing him this year

    The whole thing is stupid….MLB is relying on criminals that are blackmailing them more or less for this evidence they are trying to suspend guys with…..it’s laughable.
